Pair of Men's Bracelets

In Indian tradition, jewellery was an important aspect of formal male costume. Such adornment was not the prerogative of royalty but extended to the mercantile and almost every other class. Jewellery was a marker of social status, religious affiliation and regional background. This is a gold bracelet with white sapphires and enamel clasp on complex gold bands made in Jaipur.
